    Default aloe ferox

    I bought this as a tiny seedling size plant over 10 years ago, this is the first time it has bloomed for me. The juvenile leaves were quite different from the adult, more of a blue color and a lot of reddish spikes, the coloring has mellowed as it grew. At one time my cactus/succulent garden was a lot larger but 3 hurricanes and a fungus attack have left only a few survivors.Name:  aloe bloom (Copy).jpg

    It's taken a good month and to get this far , I'd guess the bloom should last 3 months from beginning to end. thanks everyone for your kind comments

    Lovely Garden, Ed. I have a patch of Aloe Vera which I keep for using on burns and other medicinal purposes. I have long moved away from Cactus growing. They did not like me, every time I tried to love them I would end up with an elbow or finger full of almost invisible prickles!!!LOL. Amen to them
    Yours are ;ovely.

    Wow you have some great stuff there! Dreamy!.. I am choking with envy- if only I could have a second conservatory, it would be dry and bright and only for succulents!
